lyrics

there were bodies that seemed heaven sent
there were things that I said and I meant it all
now this time I cannot make a dent
there was pleasure and pain and I miss it all
I remember the sounds that you made
used to just close my eyes and I’d see it all
now the light in my life it all fades
I keep telling myself that I’ve come a long way
I’ve come a long way now
but I can’t tell if I’m proud

will you turn me on
can you please turn me on
it’s been so long
since I’ve felt anything at all

there were habits that I couldn’t break
I left people behind
oh I’ve made mistakes
now I can’t take my eyes off your legs
but when I’m all alone you just fade away
oh this whole world is turning to grey
force myself now to eat or I’ll fade away
never drag myself out in the day
you keep telling yourself that I’ve come a long way
I’ve come a long way now
but I can’t tell if you’re proud

I’ll survive alone again
I can’t afford to love you
I can’t allow myself virtue

oh this time I cannot make amends
I've dismantled my body
I gave it all
if these means would only find the ends
I would know that it’s justified after all
now I know just how far I can bend
but I’d beg for the break just to feel it all
I am scared all my thoughts I have penned
now I’m scraping the barrel
but come a long way
oh I’ve come a long way
I’ve come a long way now
but I can’t tell if we’re proud
